'Minotaur' hits Steam!

Well, the day has finally come. After a long development (~3 years on ‘Minotaur’ alone so far), the Early Release of the game hit the Steam! At the moment, it contains Nod’s Route, the longest one of all characters (several more are currently in the making, they will be added gradually without any additional fees). Also, if you’re a music lover, don’t forget to grab the game + soundtrack combo. The score fits the adventure perfectly and professional voice acting (in English) adds greatly to the immersion. So, go ahead, face the threats of Royce building and see if you’ve got what it takes to get out of it in one piece and solve the mystery. Hope you’ll enjoy all the background and animation work from AK-ART as well as great characters and additional graphics from other artists.

Lost Earth 2307 unveiled

Time flies! German institute Fraunhofer IOSB (Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation) has presented a game AK-ART provided concepts 5 years ago, back in 2012. It's a mixture of strategy game in space and some serious science (data gathering, analysis of satellite imagery, etc.). Here is a short presentation of the game with some of the concepts visible on display at the Learntec 2017 expo booth (trade fair and convention for vocational education, learning and IT).

'Minotaur' and 'Red Crown'

The first installment in the 'The Universe of Seven' will be a mixture of adventure game and visual novel - 'Minotaur'. Rich graphics, great characters and mysterious plot guarantee hours of exciting game-play and a great introduction to the U7 lore. The first dose of information, game screenshots (with the exception of anime-like characters, all done by AK-ART) and teaser trailer are already up on the U7 website, so check them out at: http://www.uof7.com/minotaur

Along the game, as an additional source of U7 knowledge and fun, the first chapter of 'Red Crown' has been published as well. Thus time, AK-ART provided illustrations in a different style, resembling style known from Japanese manga comics. So, take a deep breath and dive into a shady world of conspiracies set in the most technologically advanced city in Kyos. The chapter can be found here: http://www.uof7.com/red-crown
